I'm converting an HTML doc to RTF using Word Automation and this works fine.  The problem is that the RTF file that is generated has linked images rather than embedded images.  How would I set this to save with embedded images so that the RTF file could be distributed without also having to include the images?

Listening to hear if there is some property you can set in Word to do it...

Otherwise, you may consider doing it manually, by searching and replacing the links to those images, with the images themselves, via the OLEObjects.Add of a richtextbox.

I did this for about 3 months straight by writing a VB app to dynamically get information from the database to a word document.

To debug, I found what the error was, and manually fixed it through word.

1. Open the damaged document in word.

2. Go to Tools -> Macro -> Record New Macro

3. Call it what you want

4. Make the necessary changes

5. Go to Tools -> Macro -> Visual Basic Editor (If you have Visual Studio Installed)

This will give you the exact macro code you can directly integrate into your application.

I would go through and make a pattern of something similar, then encorporate it into VB code and it was that easy.

The following link describes embeded RTF Picture. There is also an example.  Hit the link and then search the page for "Pictures".

Using the record macro in MSWord worked GREAT!  Thanks for the advice!
